Lyoto Machida Front-Kick KO's Vitor Belfort At UFC 224

That all-too-familiar crane kick looked identical to the one he delivered to Randy Couture back at UFC 129, while Belfort was on the receiving end of a strikingly similar kick at UFC 126 against Anderson Silva for the middleweight championship which created one of the most iconic images the sport has seen.

He went on to claim the UFC light-heavyweight title in the second of his three fights opposite Couture, but would relinquish the title to the American seven months later.

Lyoto Machida ended Vitor Belfort's night and likely his career with a booming front kick at UFC 224, and afterwards, "The Dragon" reminded folks that's not the first time he's done so.

"And the fans want to see this fight".

As will Kelvin Gastelum and Jacare Souza, who fought in a thrilling back-and-forth war in the night's co-main event. Entering that fight, Belfort had dropped four of his previous five bouts beginning with his title fight loss to Chris Weidman at UFC 187, and it's been painfully clear for quite some time that the Brazilian no longer possesses the tools that once made him a feared knockout artist.

Mackenzie Dern (right, delivering a high kick at Ashley Yoder at UFC 222 in Las Vegas in March) is a 25-year-old, multi-time Brazilian jiu jitsu world champion with a ideal 6-0 record.

A lot can change in a decade and it's cool if you're not as passionate about the UFC as you were back then, but where it becomes problematic is when those voices remain the loudest in the community.

He fought for the 205-pound belt again, almost forcing Jon Jones to submit at UFC 152, before tapping out in the fourth round.

He added: "I want to thank you, all my family".
